One of the new features present in the new 14 "and 16" MacBook Pro, equipped with the new SoC Apple M1 Pro and M1 Max, is the presence of a 3.5mm jack connector that can also drive high impedance headphones. As explained directly by the Cupertino company on its official support page (reported by 9to5Mac), laptops have the ability to detect the "DC Load" and an adaptive voltage output. This means that Macs are able to understand the impedance of the connected headphones and modulate the output accordingly to provide an optimal experience.

Apple also pointed out that the new MacBook Pros are equipped with a converter digital-to-analog that supports sample rates up to 96KHz, offering Hi-Res Lossless quality to all music lovers and therefore taking full advantage of your subscription to Apple Music. Moving on to another field, the company also stated that the "High Power" mode can improve performance when quite graphics-intensive workloads are running. In this situation, the fans can spin at higher speeds, and due to better heat dissipation, the M1 Max chip can be brought to its maximum potential.

Yesterday we also reported that the well-known iFixit portal has published a teaser relating to the teardown of the new MacBook Pro, which revealed that replacing the battery is much easier than the latest models, as the latter is not locked under the logic board and is not necessary disassemble everything to change it. However, to know the complete procedure it will be necessary to wait for the complete teardown, arriving in the next few days.

Amplifier Game Invest has opened a brand new development studio in Montreal, marking its first entry into Canada.

Goose Byte Games will be led by Theodor Diea and Nathan Ross Powell, who both worked at Ubisoft. While Amplifier has funded and established the studio, this duo and the talent they recruit will lead the creative vision for Goose Byte.

The studio will focus on original IP for PC and console, and aims to 'expand existing genres to wider audiences by putting a strong focus on innovations in UX, networking and social elements.'

Diea was previously a producer at Ubisoft Montreal, and held similar roles at Gameloft. Powell also held several positions at Ubisoft Montreal, prior to which he worked for Codemasters.

Goose Byte joins 15 other studios owned by Amplifier Game Invest, which has been expanding dramatically over the past few years with key acquisitions such as Little Nightmares developer Tarsier Studios.

Amplifier Game Invest -- formerly known as Goodbye Kansas Game Invest -- is one of eight operational organisations within the Embracer Group, alongside the likes of THQ Nordic, Koch Media and Saber Interactive.
